A rather cosy pub with a very laid-back feel and a fair beer range. The fairly dark interior is decorated with numerous photos of 60's pop groups. Oh, and check out the urinals! A row of handpumps featured TT Landlord and Knowles Spring, Tribute, Proper Job, London Pride and a rather nice brass Morrell's pump clip, the latter sadly of course just for decoration. If only...

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Albion

Corner pub at the junction of Hammersmith Road and Munden Street. It has a narrow frontage, and although the main bar doesn't stretch back that far there is also an upstairs bar accessed by a narrow metal spiral staircase (or by a set of normal stairs at the back for the faint-hearted). The layout and decor of both bars is pleasingly traditional, and the atmosphere has improved substantially in recent years. There are six handpumps in the main bar with another four upstairs; but, with some doubled-up or not in use, the choice isn't always as large as first impressions suggest. However, the quality is fine, and on my latest visit I found Pride, Tribute, Hobgoblin Gold, Trooper and Cameron's Craft Thirst Blood (£3.70) available.

This smart single room pub, handy for nearby Olympia, was built in 1925 on the site of a previous pub dating back to the 1860's. You enter into a front seating area arranged under nice latticed windows, with high tables and stools on either side and lots of black and white photos in rows on the walls. The room is bare boarded and the servery appears midway down the right hand side with a tidy dark wood counter and interesting shelved bar back with unusual glass fronted compartments. Attractive 'Albion' lamps hang directly over the counter and there is a nice clock on the back wall, above the dumb waiter. Opposite the bar, pew and low stool seating runs under white tongue and groove wall panelling and a frosted window, with various jazz albums and black and white photos of musicians on show, as well as a saxophone and trumpet, which suggest live music may be on the agenda. Beyond the bar there is a small open area and at the rear a compact, carpeted lounge appears with enough space for two tables with a few standard chairs and low stools around a lit fireplace. There is a mirror above the fire and more musical instruments, photos and album sleeves on display plus a huge TV screen on the ceiling beam showing muted Sky News with music lost somewhere under the hubbub of a good Friday night crowd. A number of punters seemed to be eating from the reasonably pried menu which had most mains at around the £10 mark.
There were five ales on the go when I arrived - Fullers London Pride, St Austell Tribute, Robinsons Trooper, Wychwood January Sale and Thwaites Wainwright. I tried the latter, a little steep at £4.10, but in decent enough condition. Service was prompt and relatively friendly and I found the atmosphere in here ideal with a good buzz, but enough space to get served and seated without too much fuss.
I liked the feel of this place, which seemed to be pretty cosy and popular with the locals. Unfortunately I couldn't stay too long due to a prior commitment, but I can imagine quite easily settling down here over a few pints and would happily return the next time I'm in the area.
